KT SPOTLIGHT - What are Citrus Terpenes?
Citrus Terpenes also referred to as d-Limonene (or just Limonene) are an oil produced from the rind of citrus through the process of distillation.
Terpenes are responsible for giving citrus their unique fragrance and flavors. Limonene is a terpene and is the main constituent extracted from the citrus fruit. Limonene gets its name from lemons. The lemon rind, along with other citrus fruit rinds, contains a significant amount of this compound. While citrus fruits are juiced and pressed, Limonene oil is also pressed from the citrus rinds. The oil and the juice are then separated and distilled. The majority remainder of the oil is then collected and is considered food grade Limonene.
